  1. Default Florida to California in 5 days

    Hi, I am traveling from South Florida to South California in the beginning of October, ideally in 5 days. I wanted to ask which cities to spend a night in with my family, which places to visit, etc. Thank you very much :)

    Default It's the minimum time required.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    With 5 days you won't have any real time for visiting places other than your nightly stops, and you will then want to get fed and rested as this drive is going to be very much like work. Basically you need to treat this like a marathon from the start and look to cover around 550 miles each day, which is 9 to 10 hours on the road with basic stops, so that's where you need to be looking for your places to stay depending on your actual start and end points. You don't say who your family consist of, but if you have Kids it will be pretty tough on them being couped up in a moving vehicle for hours on end for day after day, so if you could use a bit more time you might be able to make the trip a little more enjoyable.

    Wow, lot of miles to eat through in a short time! Are you planning on cutting through the south along I-10?

    Hi, LexandNeek, and Welcome to the Great American Roadtrip Forum.

    It sure is, and as Dave mentioned, if this family includes young children will be especially hard on them.

    Thanks for adding your comment as your first post on the RTA forum. Always appreciated.
